And considering that you already very own the songs, albums, or TV shows inside your buy background, it is possible to tap to download them to any of your iOS devices.
Photo Stream With iCloud
Take a photo on an iOS device. Or import a photo out of your digital camera for your personal computer. iCloud automatically pushes a copy of that photo over any accessible Wi-Fi or LAN connection to the Photo app in your iOS device, iPhoto or Aperture on your Mac, as well as the Pictures Library on your Computer. You are able to even see your Photo Stream album on your Apple TV. So you can show off your shots to friends and family from whichever device you’re using at the time.
iCloud manages your Photo Stream efficiently so you don’t run out of storage space on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If you have Photo Stream enabled on your iOS device, every single photo you take appears in a special Photo Stream album that holds your last 1000 photos. You can’t edit or delete photos from your Photo Stream. If you want to touch up a photo or keep a favorite shot permanently, simply save it to your Camera Roll. iCloud stores new photos for 30 days, so you have plenty of time to connect your iOS device to Wi-Fi and make sure you always have your most recent shots handy.

Friends and family appear on a map so you can quickly see where they are.

Parental controls help you manage how your child uses Find My Friends.

You don’t have to save your work or transfer your files because your data — with all your most recent updates — automatically appears on all your devices. iCloud is already configured into Apple iOS apps such as Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. It also works with other iCloud-enabled applications. You can create a spreadsheet on your iPad and make edits on your iPhone. Listen to music on your iPod touch and finish on your iPad at home.
All Your Apps. All the Time.
If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you definitely have apps. If you’re like most people, you probably download new apps all the time. iCloud automatically downloads new app purchases to all your devices simultaneously. That way the app you need is always where you need it, when you need it. If an app you purchased some time ago isn’t on one of your devices, do not worry because you can easily download it from your purchase history at no additional charge.
When you purchase a new book from the iBookstore, iCloud makes sure it appears on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. That way if your reading is interrupted, you can pick your book back up on another device, in exactly the same place you left off. Besides the best seller you can’t put down to now, the iBooks application maintains a list of books you’ve read in the past. Just like with your apps, you can download them again at any time to any of your devices.
